3rd March 2016Angela Young dealt with:
I had called in Angela as I was having trouble with my beautiful Pug who I adore but as I am about to move wanted to sort out his barking and car anxieties and some other problem areas. On arrival I had put my puggy in another room as requested but could hear the incessant barking and launching at the door which was getting me even more anxious and stressed. Angela just got up and said one word and there was not another peep for 20 minutes , that's how the rest of the session went , very reassuring, calming and always positive . Will need more sessions but definitely well worth it and have already felt the benefit in how to communicate with my puggers , also gave me lots of information help regarding food and games etc thank you Angela x
2nd March 2016Alex Fraser dealt with:
Training was very informative but we didn't have enough time to address all the issues.
Following the initial session which is rarely less than 3 hours, I will continue to support customers for 12 months or for the life time of their dog. During the initial session I always aim to try and address all issues, however sometimes this is not possible. Follow up sessions are important, as we can address any other issues and I can ensure the owners are getting things right, as my training is very much about training the owner, who can in turn train their dog.
1st March 2016Estelle Jackson dealt with:
Estelle was brilliant. She was really understanding of the issues we were having and was able to explain to us why these problems may have arisen in the first place which makes it easier to understand where we were going wrong. All the advice given was put into practise on the day so we could see there and then what effect the training had. Immediatelty we saw an improvement using a few simple but effective techniques. There were no harsh techniques and the whole thing was done in a friendly way, with explanations of what we were doing all the way through. After the initial consultation and being given a list of techniques to practise over the next couple of weeks I felt so much more positive about going forward and now believe we will be able to work through all of the issues.
Thank you so much

Sharon was very pleasant and easy to get along with, full of knowledge and advice. She explained everything plainly, and I am so glad to feel there is a solution! My boy and I have much to learn, we shall follow her instruction to the letter, and look forward to great results. Can't help but wish I had found her sooner!

29th February 2016Isla Clarke dealt with:
Isla was very understanding and took on board our problems. Both dogs were excellent with the children and around the home, however both were an absolute nightmare when around people and other dogs. Isla quickly brought the dogs under control and started to make us understand what they were thinking and how to control each situation. Within the space of 4 hours both dogs were completely different, listening to commands and walking without pulling on the lead. Absolutely amazing and we are looking forward to more of her time as the results are unbelievable.
29th February 2016Neil Price dealt with:
I was apprehensive before the training session as Toby has no discipline or adheres to any commands! I was very pleased with the session as Neil listened to myself and my partner and assured us both the training would be successful & carefully explained how the training would work.
Neil was extremely professional and took the session at tobys pace and showed a lot of patience!
Following the session we have noticed a massive difference in tobys behaviour and other family members have even passed comment! All after one session! I look forward to the remaining sessions and feel a relaxed in the notion the training will be a success!
Most definitely value for money & I would certainly recommend bark busters to family & friends.

28th February 2016Lynn Prentice dealt with:
I signed up to Barkbusters because I felt I couldn't manage my dog - she was constantly pulling hard on the lead, and would pull me over to chase squirrels. She would also run madly round in circles and nip at anyone near by to get them to play with her.
After my first lesson I was immediately able to manage Kyla better and with very little practice the whole family was able to walk her with little or no pulling. After our 2 lessons (and some feedback over the phone) I have been more and more able to manage Kyla who is now a completely different dog. Lynne has very cleverly helped me understand what I need to change about the way I interact with Kyla in order to control her better. Kyla is also much calmer.
26th February 2016David and Anthony Swindells dealt with:
We had a fantastic first session with Anthony, so impressed with his manner and knowledge, he really helped us feel at ease and understand Murphy's (our stubborn shih tzu) point of view. After just one evening session (which he purposely arranged to suit us) the difference in Murphy was amazing, he was calm, settled and seemed relieved to no longer have to try and be in charge all the time. The support is the best bit, knowing that any time in the next year we can cry for help is hugely reassuring especially as we are first time dog owners! So happy with Anthony and definitely recommend him and bark busters as a whole, who have been great from ringing for advice to quick email replies. Thank you Anthony!! All the family is looking forward to the next step in making Murphy and us happier.
25th February 2016Linda Dodsworth dealt with:
Bear is doing really well with most of the training, still a few teething problems, but we are getting there. Linda was amazing and very professional in teaching training methods. It's a comfort to know back up is there for a whole year if we need it. Would definitely recommend Barkbusters.
Bear is a beautiful Norwegian Elkhound. I have been in this profession for a lot of years and even after all this time I hadn't met one before! It was lovely to learn about a different breed and I'm looking forward to continuing our training together.
